Bush Clinton Horseplay
George Bush playing horseshoes as Bill Clinton watches from the background.
The sculpture of Bush, officially named "George H.W. Bush as a Horseplayer", was made by Pat Oliphant in 1989.
The abstract painting of Clinton is by Chuck Close. Close begins all his paintings with a photograph of his subject. In this case, he used a 2005 photograph of Clinton that appeared on the cover of "New York Magazine". Close then creates grids on both the canvas and the original image to replicate the information contained in the photograph with a series of abstract modules on the canvas.
The sculpture of Bush and the painting of Clinton can be seen at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery and American Art Museum in Washington, D.C.
